It's by no means luxury, but this little hostel was lovely. Bathrooms were reasonably clean, with hot showers available between certain hours (this was not a problem). There is a kitchen in the hostel that offers breakfast and dinner for a good price. For breakfast there is a range of options that you should definitely try out, and for dinner... More

Best hostel we stayed at in Italy!! Amazing view, friendly guys who worked there and the most communal, social place we stayed at. Wifi, cheap bar and best shower facilities we've used (definitely have had some shockers). Definitely choose the 10 mixed dorm over the female only, really spacious and clean. Breakfast offered and accomodation the cheapest you'll find in... More

My two friends and I stayed in a private room which overlooked the water while we were in Positano. This hostel is in a great location and is very affordable. We met lots of cool people and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! I would definitely recommend it!

Worst place I have ever stayed and I have almost no standards as all I care about is a place to crash at night and spend my days out and touring. I've been all over the world and was even homeless for a time- I am not picky- but this place was icky. There is a very good reason why... More

I studied abroad last semester in Prague but I came to Positano for my last big trip. it was the GREATEST trip ever and Cristiana and all the staff at Hostel Brikette were soooooo wonderful. They were accommodating, helpful, friendly and made us feel like family. Also her cooking and homemade lemonciello was incredible. I am 100% going back there... More

I LOVED my stay here. The staff are helpful and extremely friendly, they really made our stay! The view is absolutely breathtaking, and there is a lovely balcony to appreciate it from where the guests tended to congregate. Everything was really clean and the atmosphere was really lovely. Cristiana and Pete's Italian cooking was out of this world. They have... More

I want to start by saying that anyone with a complaint about this place needs to stop and realize where they are. Positano is a world class destination for the most wealthy people alive and there is a reason for that. Those of us lucky enough to visit a place like this at a price they offer should have no...

I just want to thank the amazing staff at Brikette! They were very friendly and accommodating.. I couldn't have asked for a better time. The location is amazing and the overall experience was fun and I made a lot of good friendships in my short time there. Anyone travelling here definitely go check it out, you'll have a great time!

Given that this is the only reasonable option in positano, we are grateful for the hospitality at hostel brikette. However, reviews are meant to show other travelers exactly what they are getting into. Bring fifteen euros in coins, because everything from coffee, to towels, to printing one sheet of paper for your train ticket will cost you. The social environment... More
